This is my last semester at junior college

<p>After this week, I'll be off to the University of Houston to finish the rest of my Physics BS. I'm transferring from San Jacinto College in the Houston area. I completed Cal I-III, Linear Algebra, and University Physics I and II. From my understanding, it's a well-respected junior college, and I don't have any complaints about the math and science courses I took there. My next math and physics courses will be Modern Physics I and II and Differential Equations. Will I be behind a bit in those classes? I'm going to take DE before I start Modern Physics.</p>

<p>No that's usually the normal progression</p>

<p>Calc I -> Calc II -> Calc III -> Diff EQ
Physics I (Mechanics) -> Physics II (E&M, heat/optics) -> Modern Physics (Quantum)</p>

<p>I know the prerequisites. I kind of meant as far as rigor is concerned since I am going to a university from a junior college.</p>

<p>Yes it will be harder but you are as prepared as you are going to be. I don't think you are behind at all as far as pre-req material will go.</p>

<p>you get out of an education what you put into it. If you worked hard and learned the material, you should be fine.</p>

<p>Years ago, we had a fellow transfer from a CC into the physics program at our big state flagship. He looked like he was underwater for quite a while; I think the rigor at his CC wasn't as high as ours, and he was going through the adjustment to the workload that we all went through as freshman. But he worked hard and made it. I'd study your old material before you begin at Houston. Hit the ground running, so to speak. Good luck!</p>

<p>San Jacinto Community College is well-reputed, and a lot of people transfer from San Jac to U of H. I wouldn't worry too much, just make sure you keep up with what you need to keep up with, and clear up anything you encounter that you're not familiar with before you get bogged down with things you don't understand. Should be fine!</p>

<p>DE will be no problem. No sure about Physics.</p>
